The latest poster for French director Guillaume Canet’s upcoming crime thriller Blood Ties plays up the family angle with a scrapbook-style layout featuring cast members Clive Owen, Zoe Saldana, Mila Kunis, Marion Cotillard, James Caan, and Billy Crudup.

Set in 1970s New York, Blood Ties follows 50-year-old Chris (Clive Owen) as he attempts to put his life back together after being released from prison, where he was serving time following a gangland murder. Waiting outside the prison gates for him is his younger brother, Frank (Billy Crudup), a cop with a bright future who’s hoping his brother has changed his ways. Despite setting Frank up with a job and a roof over his head, and reconnecting him with his children and ex-wife (Marion Cotillard), Chris just can’t seem to shake the life of crime he had before. Upon the discovery of Chris’ relapse into crime, Frank banishes his brother from his life only to find that despite not wanting anything to do with Chris, he can’t escape their joint destiny.

Blood Ties, which premiered at Cannes last year, hits theaters and VOD on March 21.

The 1920s in America were full of promise, but also a ton of hardship.

Nowhere is that more prevalent than the immigrant experience, and the millions of people that came through Ellis Island in search of a better life. In The Immigrant, one of those huddled masses is Marion Cotillard, whose character comes over with her sister from Poland. Unable to gain citizenship, she becomes a prostitute in the house of Bruno (Joaquin Phoenix), “a morose exploiter with a poison soul, who nevertheless loves her in his tormented-sadistic way,” according to EW critic Owen Gleiberman.

The film, directed by James Gray (Two Lovers) and also starring Jeremy Renner, originally premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.

Cannes 2013: 'Blue Is the Warmest Color' is a seriously sexy French lesbian love story

There’s a first time for everything. At a Cannes showing of Blue Is the Warmest Color, a three-hour French drama about a young woman who falls into a romance that digs its hooks in and won’t let go of her, the audience sat raptly as Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos), a quietly precocious 17-year-old Paris high school girl, goes to bed with Emma (Léa Seydoux), the painter and Fine Arts graduate student she met at a lesbian bar. It’s Adèle’s first experience with another woman — but ever since the late ’70s, there have been plenty of lesbian-awakening dramas, most of them on the soft and dewy side. In this case, when the sex scene was over, after what felt like it must have been 15 minutes of writhing, moaning erotic hunger, people in the audience burst into whoops of approval and applause — something I have never in my life seen happen after a sex scene. It’s not so much that the audience was being cute, attempting to acknowledge that the scene was “hot” (although yes, it seriously was). What they were applauding was the authenticity: the fact that the heat was real, and thus the heat had become the drama. Very Last Tango, except minus the perversity. READ FULL STORY

In an interview with io9, Darbont said “What we’re trying to do with the new movie is not have it camp, not have it be campy. We’re kind of taking a cool new look at it. But with a lot of tradition in the first film. We want this to be a terrifying force of nature.” As we previously reported, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Bryan Cranston are also in negotiations for the film. [Variety]

Marion Cotillard crying, dreamy, silent in new 'Rust and Bone' trailer - VIDEO

Oscar winner Marion Cotillard has the delicate, smooth-skinned beauty of an adult cherub, even scrubbed free of makeup, whittled down into a crying mess and completely vulnerable as a whale trainer who loses her legs in a new trailer, completely devoid of dialog, for her upcoming film Rust and Bone.

The pair forge a deep relationship in the film, which is set for U.S. release in November. Cotillard won a best actress Oscar in 2008 for her French language role as singer Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose.

Woody Allen lists the five iconic actresses he wishes he could go back in time to direct -- EXCLUSIVE

If you had to choose one director to bring out a career performance in any actress, you can’t do much better than Woody Allen. During his amazing 45-year career as a director, he’s worked with many of the best, and Oscar has always been impressed. Diane Keaton, Penélope Cruz, Mira Sorvino, and Dianne Wiest all have trophies from their collaborations with Allen, to say nothing of the nominated performances from Samantha Morton, Judy Davis, Geraldine Page, and others.

In Midnight in Paris, Allen’s comedy-fantasy about a 21st-century writer (Owen Wilson) high on the nostalgic fumes of 1920s Paris — out today on home video and digital download — it’s Marion Cotillard and Rachel McAdams who get to dance with the master auteur. Actresses have always leaped at the opportunity to be Allen’s muse, and at this point of his career, any role in one of his films is an honor capable of luring even the hottest young ingenues.

But if Allen could go back to a different age — Midnight in Paris-like — what legendary Hollywood actresses would he most have wanted to cast in his films? We asked the director to name his Top 5, and he responded quickly, as if he had the list waiting in his pocket. “They were all fabulous actresses with their own styles,” he wrote in an e-mail about his selections. “But however different those styles were, they all worked on the screen and you believed them.” Click below for the leading ladies of Allen’s cinematic dreams: READ FULL STORY
